We specialise in children's illustrated books, mainly from the Victorian era up until the 1950s. We also have a good selection of pop-up and moveable books, as well as some non English language books. There is just so much fabulous material available which is good for the avid collector, but also just as one off presents for birthdays, christenings and anniversaries. They represent presents which are investments as well as being romantic. If you don't have the time to search, just let us know and we can help you and perhaps assist in finding that special present. It is our intention to please all of our customers and to this end we attempt to provide very thorough and realistic descriptions of all of our books. All books are described in accordance with the guide published by the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association (see http://www.aba.org.uk) and the overall condition is defined as per the Abebooks glossary. As we recognise it can be difficult to buy a book ‘unseen’ we attempt to be very thorough in the descriptions. All of our books are supported by a photograph. If you require any additional photographs, or indeed any additional information, please e-mail or call and we will be more than pleased to oblige. We also have many more children's books for sale that are not yet catalogued on ABE, please contact us if you have any special requests or interest. Most of all enjoy browsing through our books, there is nothing more wonderful than an illustrated children's book!

I try to keep shipping costs as low as possible and where ever I can I absorb postage that is in excess of the rates quoted in the table. On very rare occasions, such as for volume sets or for books that are particularly heavy or oversized, I may contact you to let you know extra shipping is required.
